If so, then you want to take some time and set up a few FREE SEO analytic tools.  Besides Google Analytics, these free search engine optimization tools are easy to install on the Mozilla Firefox web browser and will give you the insight needed to make informed desicions when developing your real estate search engine optimization strategy.

Here is my top picks for FREE search engine optimization (SEO) analytic tools that you should be using:

  • SEO Quake (www.SeoQuake.com) – This free SEO Firefox plugin tells you a ton of information about a website such as pagerank, alexa rank, backlinks, WhoIs info, # of listings in the DMOZ.org directory, Technorati links, Delicious links, and Digg submissions.  I use this search engine optimization tool daily!

  • Rank Tracker (www.SEOmoz.org) – Free search engine optimization tool that helps you trank your search engine rankings over time.  As a basic (free) member you can check up to five sites per day!  You need to sign upQuirk.biz/searchstatus Screenshot Graphic for a free account on the website, but it is worth it as I use this tool often.
  • Google Analytics (www.Google.com/analytics) – Free professional website analytics tool that helps you track an array of  useful data such as # of visitors on your website over time, where those visitors came from, and how long they stayed on your site.  Code is easy to instal and is absolutely the best free analytics software available.
  • Search Status (www.Quirk.biz/searchstatus) – Another free SEO plugin for Firefox that displays Google’s PageRank, Alexa popularity ranking, Alexa incoming links, Compete.com ranking, and SEOmoz Linkscape mozRank.  It also allows you to highlight “NoFollow” links, view a full link report, display the Robot.txt info, and display any pages meta tag data.
